Computer technologies are progressing at a breakneck speed. But the tremendous computing speed and the enormous storage capacity come to naught, if we do not have intelligent human-computer interfaces. In this talk, I shall describe some of the research my students and I have been doing during the last decade on Human Computer Interaction. Specifically, information flow from human to computer: Hand/fingers tracking and gesture recognition; face tracking and emotion recognition; shrug detection; gender and age group recognition. And information flow from computer to human: Audio- visual emotive avatar. These interfaces have applications in many areas including Gaming and Electronic Consumer Relation Management (ECRM). Examples in ECRM include: Collection of demographic data (how many % of white male teenagers buy Product X?), adaptive public display (what is displayed depends on the genders, ages, and emotional reactions of the audience), and embodied intelligent agent.
